A Thank You Letter To My Boyfriend's Parents

Thank you for all that you do.

A Thank You Letter To My Boyfriend's Parents

When you are dating someone, things that are important to them become important to you as well. One of those things is their family. Families are a huge part of our lives, so it’s only natural that your significant other's family becomes a huge part of your life too. Even though his parents aren't technically your family, they do so much for you that they feel like family.

1. Thank You for Making Me Feel Like a Member of Your Family

No matter what we're doing, you all always make me feel so welcomed and comfortable. You both go out of your way to make sure I feel included with everyone. It feels like I'm with my own family.

2. Thank You for Letting Me Steal Your Son

I know that parents love spending time with their children (and children love spending time with their parents), but thank you for letting me steal your son away from you sometimes to go shopping, out to eat, or even on vacation for a week.

3. Thank You for Raising an Amazing Man

His good work ethic, his respectfulness, his responsibility, without the two of you, he wouldn't be the person he is today.

4. Thank You for All of the Food You Have Bought Me

Pickles and ketchup for the house (even though nobody else will ever eat them) meals when we go out to eat, food that you bring home, and snacks that I have when I'm over. I know it's been a lot, and I try to always say thank you, but just in case I didn't one time, thank you again!

5. Thank You for Teaching Him How To Treat a Woman

He always holds doors open for me, buys me flowers, listens to me complain and is my best friend. He is without a doubt the best boyfriend I could ask for, and I think a lot of that is thanks to you both!

6. Thank You for Always Keeping Me In the Loop

He sometimes forgets to tell me things (like when his game is at a different place), but I can always count on you to make sure I know what's going on!

7. Thank You for Being Entertaining

You both are so funny, whether you know it or not. You're always making me laugh. I love that I'm included in some of the family inside-jokes.

8. Thank You for Caring

You always tell me to get home safe, ask about school and keep up to date about what is going on in my life.

9. Thank You for Spending Time With My Parents

I am so glad that you guys get along with my parents and that the 6 of us can all spend time together. We need to have another family game night soon, okay?

10. Thank You for Teasing Me

When you tease me or joke with me, it really makes me feel like I'm a part of the family (plus it's hilarious).

11. Thank You for Letting Him Date Me

You probably secretly get sick of seeing me all the time, me tagging along everywhere, and for taking up a lot of your son's time, but thank you for approving of and supporting us being together.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
